The Nixie Watch Inspired by Retro Future 70's Technology is the Perfect Accessory for Your Everyday Outfits
The Nixie tube watch is a unique, one-of-a-kind, handcrafted timepiece. Each watch has been meticulously assembled using vintage Nixie tubes, anodized aluminum, and custom electronics.
Introduced in 1955, Nixie tubes were first used as numeric displays in digital voltmeters, frequency counters, and early calculators before being superseded by LEDs in the 1970s. These tubes are made of glass and contain a wire-mesh anode and multiple cathodes shaped like numerals. Applying power to one cathode surrounds it with a unique orange glow. Even though the Nixie tubes in this watch are more than 25 years old, they are unused and their lifetime is estimated to be 200K hours—equivalent to more than 20 years. A lot of equipment using this technology is still found in excellent working order. This is a testament to the longevity and quality of Nixie tubes.
The Model 2 Nixie Tube Watch is a limited edition design. This means it is guaranteed to be an original watch that not many other people own. Take this opportunity to own a representation.
